Braemar

The Fred Olsen Braemar invites her passengers to sail onboard and experience traditional-style cruising with a friendly atmosphere.

Braemar is a typical Fred. Olsen cruise ship weighing 19,089 tonnes, offering an intimate and classic cruising experience. The ship has huge expansive windows, good-sized terraces, and with large open decks and a glass-walled atrium stretching elegantly over five decks, there’s no doubt that this beautiful ship has been designed to perfection.

Fred. Olsen cruises offer a unique range of friendly and intimate cruise experiences where passengers are encouraged to engage and interact with each other. This helps to create the tight-knit, family atmosphere that Fred. Olsen cruises are known for.

Braemar travels the globe on Caribbean Cruises and Mediterranean Cruises as well as taking in the Latin flavour of South America.

Family

Through the Youth Program, staff are trained to help younger cruisers harness their enthusiasm for all things fun, giving the little ones - and the slightly less-little ones - a chance to meet future friends while having an age-appropriate, supervised blast in Carnival Breeze's multiple youth spaces. Activities, special teen-only shore excursions, movie nights and more round out the experience that they won't forget.

There are plenty of facilities onboard Braemar to help you while away your free time on the ship. From shops stocking a wide variety of goods including stylish fashion labels and high-end perfumes to a well-stocked library where passengers can relax in comfortable mahogany chairs and catch up on some reading, there’s an activity for every mood and interest.

Fred. Olsen also offer a comprehensive array of themed cruises, which allow passengers to combine their hobbies or interests with amazing cruise experiences. Some of the most popular themes are food and wine, featuring professional lecturers ready to impart their knowledge onto guests.

Customer reviews for Braemar

Enjoyable Mystery Cruise with friends. Aviles, very average, Bordeaux, interesting. Falmouth Beautiful weather, greeted by the Mayor, port laid on coutesy bus to Maritime Museum, then enjoyed the quaint streets and harbour.

We felt the journey to Avila’s was too far for just a day especially as it was a Bank Holiday there and everywhere was shut! The entertainment on the ship was very poor nothing to do while at sea days. The beds were too hard and we had bad back aches. On the plus side the food was very good and the staff very pleasant.
